CES 2013: Talking To Basis About The First Intelligent Fitness Tracker

Fitness trackers need to get smart before they can really help us. And the Basis Band might be the first one to really get it. We spoke to Basis and got a little video demo for you guys at CES 2013.

I've written before that fitness trackers have serious problems--your standard Fitbit, Fuelband, or Jawbone Up is little more than a pedometer with bonus charts. But that's not a knock on the idea of fitness trackers, just the execution: these gadgets could be amazing! All they have to do is start thinking for themselves. The Basis Band, a wristwatch-like tracker, could be the first to really understand that, so we found Basis's booth at CES and asked them about it.
